Keeping You up to date on the status of Virginia's 2005 Delegate races!

We are up to date!

Allright, our blog has caught up to itself. Every race we have covered is now linked on the right- either under the "uncalled" section (21 races) or the winners list (32 races).

This coming week we will be covering the rest of the Democratic and Republican primaries, as well as calling some more races.

Use this thread to give us your opinion on how we can do better.

Also, of the 21 uncalled races, 12 are currently Republican held, 9 are currently Democratic held.

Of those 21:

12 are leaning or better towards Republicans

6 Are leaning or better towards Democrats

3 are tossups.

The reason the Republicans have a slight edge so far, is two democratic seats would go republican if the election were held today. Chap Petersen's open 37th, and Albert Pollard's open 99th.

2 of the 3 tossups are in Republican held seats, so if Democrats swept the 3 tossups today, the House makeup would be unchanged.

These numbers will change as we get more races posted and situations change. For example, before John Mason ran, Chap Petersen's seat was an easy hold for the Democrats, now it's trending Republican.

Radio Coverage of the Brittish Election:

"It appears pigions have delivered a verdict here in London on some of the candidates posters"

One other note:

So far if the Republicans swept the Leans seats of both parties as well as the tossups they would gain 5 seats for a 65-33-2 majority. With both indys caucusing with the Repubs as they do now, that would be a veto proof majority in the House.

If the Democrats swept the Leans seats of both parties as well as the tossups, they would gain four seats to be in a much closer house of 56 GOP, 42 Dem and 2 Indy.

So there's hope for both sides.
